Nothing gets people riled up on social media more than pro athletes or celebrities posting simple, cryptic tweets. Pittsburgh Steelers’ wide receiver Antonio Brown exemplified that Wednesday morning when he tweeted “Rise up.”

This of course has been the Falcons and their fans slogan since the 2016 run to the Super Bowl.

Falcons fans responded to the tweet imploring Brown to come to Atlanta and join Julio Jones, which would surely create the best wide receiver combination in the NFL.

The Falcons even responded to Brown’s cryptic tweet, which then caused the Steelers to get involved.

The idea of Brown coming to Atlanta is a mere pipe dream however. He is under contract with the Steelers till 2021 and it is very unlikely the team would part ways with its star playmaker.
